sweetened by nature oatmeal!

Okay, so this is hardly a recipe, but what I made for myself for breakfast this morning is SO GOOD and SO HEALTHY! I’ve been trying to incorporate dates into my diet a little more, as I read a study that said women who consume 6 dates a day in their last 4 weeks of pregnancy have shorter labors. I really love dates, but eating six in one sitting is a little much. I need to break them up throughout the day. This morning I made myself some oatmeal with almond milk, sliced bananas, dates,coconut flakes and cinnamon. OMG ITS SO YUMMYYYYYY! There is no added sweetener except for the fruit, and it is perfect.


What you need:

  • 1/2 cup quick cook oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 2 medjool dates, halved and then halved again
  • cinnamon, to taste
  • coconut, to taste

Prepare your oatmeal on the stovetop or in the microwave. Top with cinnamon, bananas, dates and coconuts. ENJOY!
